New York

New York is a state so popular; it had to name a city after itself.  The city itself is a beacon of everything that modern life should be.  It is the international commerce capital in the country.  The amount of gold kept in the U.S. Reserve Bank of New York is enough to dwarf the supply kept in Fort Knox.  The large cities are not the only reason to check this state out.  There are vast woodlands to the north, and if you keep going toward Buffalo, you can see Niagara Falls.With over 722 miles of subway track, the transportation system is one of the largest in the world.  Each day, millions of commuters find their way into the city to begin work.  It has always been, and will always be among the most famous cities in the country.  With a history that dates back many centuries, New York has seen it all.

Visiting the state is easy.  Millions of people from around the world make a visit to the state each year.  Here are a few things that you didn’t know.

  • The Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan is the only school in the world offering a Bachelor of Science Degree with a Major in Cosmetics and Fragrance Marketing.
  • Rochester is known as both the Flour City and the Flower City. The community is home to the first abolitionist group, bloomers, marshmallows, Jell-O, French’s Mustard, baby shoes, gold teeth and the mail chute.
  • The 641 mile transportation network known as the Governor Thomas E. Dewey Thruway is the longest toll road in the United States.
  • The Woodstock Music and Arts Fair was actually held in Bethel.
  • Sam Wilson, a meat packer from Troy who’s caricature Uncle Sam came to personify the United States is buried at Troy’s Oakwood Cemetery. During the War of 1812, he stamped “U.S. Beef” on his products which soldiers interpreted the U.S. abbreviation as meaning Uncle Sam.

With those facts brought to light, it makes you want to run to the state faster.  Moving there  would be just as easy.
